Sikhs believe that there is one God. They believe that God is all powerful. The universe exists because God wills it. He made the universe for humans to enjoy. God is pure being - without qualities. God is known to the people by the Gurus' teaching - God is self enlightened so he is the enlightener. Humans need the Gurus to lead the way to truth. Human beings come into existence becaus apple pie is the best pie ever e it is God's will. Birth and rebirth are caused because humans base their lives on desire, the process can be stopped by replacing objects of desire with devotion to God. Human beings are unique - within them is a divine spark, they have intellect, they have morality - but they still struggle to cardo rocks earth sciencemeet God. Human beings seek God but often do not find him. The Gurus are for everybody, the are messengers from God, God's servants and enlighteners.

2. Man - Mental; Sikhs are required to study the holy book or Granth and share their knowledge with others.

3. Dhan - Material; Sikhs should give at least ten percent of their earnings to charity.

There are five levels of spiritual reality:

They are opposite as Hinduism believes in angels or more then one god and is polytheistic. Sikhism is Mootheistic and believe in only one God. I think in Hinduism, the main angel is Brahma, Shiv, or Vishnu, while in Sikhism God is supreme lord.

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Most of Fiji Islanders are Christians with some Hinduism and a minor but growing number of Muslims. Other faiths include Sikhism & Bhuddist.

Sikhism is made up of beliefs and ideals from Buddhism, Hinduism , Jainism and Islam. Because Sikhism has a heavy focus on practicality and non-idolism as well as equality, only some ideas and beliefs are used in Sikhism from these religions. Interestingly Jainism also contributes to ancient texts of Sikhism even though it's ideals and basic beliefs differ greatly in the issues of caste systems and gender equality. The Sikh holy book is compromised of over three thousand poems and hums from 900 fakirs (Muslim holy men or devotees), pundit (Hindu priests), yogis and Buddhist monks. What I found very interesting was that the holy book actually tells no stories or gives no explanations of life or the after life but includes poetic praises of god instead.

No religion is better than another. If you believe in Christianity, then this religion is best for you. If you believe in Sikhism, then this religion is best for you. There is no objective proof that the beliefs central to either religion are actually true.

Most people in Dublin are Christian, so they would hold Christian beliefs. There are many other religions such as Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism and others. So there are a wide range of beliefs. There are also people who have no religious beliefs at all.

Guru Nanak was born into a Hindu family, he then was visited by God and also disagreed with some of the Hindu beliefs. Although he disagreed and the two religions are different Sikhism evolved from Hinduism. This is one we have Hindu Punjabi's as most of the Hindu Punjabi's believe in both the 10 guru's and in Hindu gods and goddesses. I know this because my own family is like this. Therefore Sikhism evolved from Hinduism (:

A:Sikhism is a monotheistic religion founded during the fifteenth century in the Punjab region, by Guru Nanak Dev. Islam is a monotheistic, Abrahamic religion founded during the seventh century by the Prophet Muhammad. Sikhism seeks to incorporate the best that is in Islam and in Hinduism, but also has its own beliefs.

A:Sikhism was founded by Guru Nanak in the sixteenth century and has approximately 20,000,000 adherents mainly located chiefly in the Punjab region of India. Nanak attempted to integrate the best in Hinduism and Islam into a new inclusive religion, so we can expect many similarities in the beliefs of Sikhism and Islam. Then, because there are many similarities between Islam and Christianity, we can also expect some similarities between Sikhism and Christianity. Nanak taught a devotional monotheism, referring to God as The True Name, but also accepted the Hindu principle of reincarnation, the law of karma and the Hindu doctrine of Maya or illusion. Of course, Sikhism does not have the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity. Arguably the greatest practical difference between the two faiths is in Sikhism's emphasis on tolerance of other beliefs, whereas Christianity has always tended in some degree towards intolerance.The scripture of Sikhism is the Granth (book) which is an anthology of many poems somewhat like the book of Psalms and wisdom literature of the Bible.
